The incredible new thriller from international bestseller John Grisham.
The next book in the no 1 Sunday Times bestselling Camino Island series! When Hurricane Leo threatens Florida's Camino Island, the Governor is quick to issue an evacuation order. Most residents flee but a small group of diehards decide to ride it out. Amongst them is Bruce Cable, proprietor of Bay Books in downtown Santa Rosa. The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are levelled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people are killed. One of the victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce's who wrote timely political thrillers. But evidence suggests that the storm wasn't the cause of Nelson's death - he had received several mysterious blows to the head. Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed with the aftermath of the storm and in no condition to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson's novels were more fact than fiction. And somewhere on Nelson's computer is the manuscript of his new novel - could the key to the case be right there, in black and white? Bruce starts to look into it and what he finds between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson's plot twists - and far more dangerous.

I 1980’erne bliver en 10-årig farvet pige brutalt voldtaget af to hvide mænd i Mississippi. De bliver fanget og stillet for retten, men pigens far skyder dem ned, da de forlader det indledende retsmøde. Den unge, idealistiske advokat Jake Brigance påtager sig forsvaret af faderen, men er oppe mod meget hårde odds i en sag, hvor både Ku Klux Klan og de sorte borgerrettighedsbevægelser mobiliserer. Derved åbnes op for de racekonflikter, som altid har luret under overfladen i den lille sydstatsby, og sagen begynder nu også at få store personlige konsekvenser for Brigance ...OM FORFATTERENJohn Grisham er en af de mest succesfulde spændingsforfattere nogensinde. Hans baggrund som advokat har givet inspiration til hans bøger, hvor retssystemet altid indgår som en del af plottet.Inspirationen til Øje for øje fik han i retssalen. Han overværede en vidneforklaring fra en 12-årig pige, der var blevet voldtaget. Det berørte ham dybt, og episoden fik ham til at tænke over, hvad der ville være sket, hvis pigens far havde grebet til selvtægt overfor voldtægtsmanden. Den overvejelse førte til bogen Øje for øje. Bogen blev afvist 28 steder, før et lille ukendt forlag besluttede at trykke den i oplag på 5.000 eksemplarer. Det var ikke nogen stor succes, men Grisham var allerede begyndt at skrive sin næste bog, og denne gang var der for alvor bid. Firmaets mand, som bogen kom til at hedde, blev udgivet i 1991. Herefter lå den på New York Times’ bestsellerliste i 47 uger. Det hårde arbejde havde båret frugt. Øje for øje blev genudgivet, og denne gang blev også den en bestseller. Siden succesen har Grisham været fuldtidsforfatter. Han har udgivet en roman om året, og hver eneste af dem har været bestsellere. Der er over 250 millioner trykte eksemplarer af hans bøger i omløb, og han er blevet oversat til 29 forskellige sprog.PRSSEN SKREV"Selv om det er en debutroman, og Grisham endnu ikke her har finpudset talentet, er den meget velskrevet og ikke mindst spændende. I forordet nævner forfatteren, at der er en del selvbiografiske træk i Brigance, og det mærkes at bogen er skrevet med stor social indignation og meget hjerteblod. Bogen er (selvfølgelig) også filmatiseret under titlen A time to kill" - Bibliotekernes lektørudtalelse"Den er ufatteligt god. Man lever sig helt ind i den, og man får virkelig følelsen af selv at være en del af dramaet. Man føler virkelig med Carl Lee og hans familie! Øje for øje gjorde at jeg begyndte at læse flere bøger af John Grisham" - saxo.com"Ud fra trappen springer manden og pludselig er der panik, dette er grunden i hele fortællingen. En fortælling om en mands kamp mod det, han mener er uretfærdigheden i det amerikanske retssystem. En fantastisk bog om en fars kamp for retfærdighed. Nyd den, endnu et mesterværk er skrevet." - saxo.com

"Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and told with the air of suspense that few writers can handle, Wastelands is a story I wish I had written." -John Grisham The once idyllic coastal plain of North Carolina is home to a close-knit, rural community that for more than a generation has battled the polluting practices of large-scale farming taking place in its own backyard. After years of frustration and futility, an impassioned cadre of local residents, led by a team of intrepid and dedicated lawyers, filed a lawsuit against one of the world's most powerful companies-and, miraculously, they won. As vivid and fast-paced as a thriller, Wastelands takes us into the heart of a legal battle over the future of America's farmland and into the lives of the people who found the courage to fight.There is Elsie Herring, the most outspoken of the neighbors, who has endured racial slurs and the threatof a restraining order to tell the story of the waste raining down on her rooftop from the hog operation next door. There is Don Webb, a larger-than-life hog farmer turned grassroots crusader, and Rick Dove, a riverkeeper and erstwhile military judge who has pioneered the use of aerial photography to document the scale of the pollution. There is Woodell McGowan, a quiet man whose quest to redeem his family's ancestral land encourages him to become a better neighbor, and Dr. Steve Wing, a groundbreaking epidemiologist whose work on the health effects of hog waste exposure translates the neighbors' stories into the argot of science. And there is Tom Butler, an environmental savant and hog industry insider whose whistleblowing testimony electrifies the jury.Fighting alongside them in the courtroom is Mona Lisa Wallace, who broke the gender barrier in her small southern town and built a storied legal career out of vanquishing corporate giants, and Mike Kaeske,whose trial skills are second to none. With journalistic rigor and a novelist's instinct for story, Corban Addison's Wastelands captures the inspiring struggle to bring a modern-day monopoly to its knees, to force a once-invincible corporation to change, and to preserve the rights-and restore the heritage-of a long-suffering community.
